I read the Aberdeen casual book written by Jay Allan. Didn't particularly want to but the Sheepie who gave me it said I'd be interested in the parts about Hearts. Funniest bit was at the end. He listed all the teams in Scotland and "assessed" their casuals. For us he said "don't really have a lot of casuals - but they don't need to because their ordinary fans, of all ages, are crazy.

there`s a book called top boys which has an interview with an aberdeen casual called mr. m. one question was who was the most violent, crazy set of supporters you ever came across? 

his answer was "hearts scarfers from the early 80`s. they never really took to the scene as their support was made up of punks and skins. before the casual scene, the gorgie aggro were one of the most violent set of fans in scotland. they were always a difficult test for the asc, even when we had good numbers. one game when aberdeen won the league in 1984 on a wednesday night, the gorgie lads waited for the asc to come out of the ground and attacked from all angles, forcing us back into our end. eventually we managed to get back out and there was fighting all the way back to the train station miles away."

Stopped being part of the aggro when i joined up in 81 but before that it was proper mental. Many a scrape with the Drylaw and District. Some proper scary blokes around then.

Hell yeah!! Parkhead was an all hands on deck type of battle. 💣💥

Was mental on a dark midweek post match. Not many would come back to football these days after having fought their way home like we used to have to. Got my nose broken as a 14 yr old by a mid 30s gorilla on that bus park.

Yeah I remember one particular dark Wednesday night where there were battles all over & around the car park. 

Can't remember Hearts ever coming out 2nd best against their sneaky bottle throwing mob!!

I was in the stand for the Rangers replay in 1986 which we won with a late donald ford goal.  Place was packed to the door. Rangers and Hearts supporters were separated in the shed by lines of police.

 

It all set off long before the goal.  A massive brawl.  Dozens of arrests and they were paraded round the track and right in front of us.  Many were bleeding.  Selective and impressive police work as all were dressed in blue.

Went with the casuals pretty much from day one. Said it before on here, loved every minute of it. Loads of cowards did jump ship in the 80s to that mob down the road. Kind of defeated the purpose imo, better off in a tighter mob where your guaranteed a scrap as opposed to "the best mob" where most teams were on their toes. 

We all have varied opinions of the casual scene but without doubt most were/are some of hearts most loyal fans. Fact. 

I bet youre middle aged now and STILL think its good to start fights in the street with fellow knuckle draggers. Bet you even sing the billy boys as well.

It's OK to let it go you know.

The "Pans" isn't a team mate. There druggies, neds, knuckle draggers and even worse, hibbies down here. Bet there's far more in Edinburgh though!

Whatever I think or do , it's none of your business mate. Just expressing my opinion. Pretty sure you do/have done some stuff in your life I don't particularly agree with but unlike a lot of guffys on here I don't judge. 

But you carry on calling people names from safety of your wee room . 

Superb!

Wonder if this brings back memories.

Why are you piping up?? 

I thought it was relevant to the nature of the topic being discussed. 

So when you post something on here based on your previous experiences then you should be condemned,  that how it works in here??

It was relevant. 
There’s an irony on these type of threads where people try to moralise to others. I don’t get it, as most have done some daft stuff in the past.

Some of these incidents were 40 and more years ago so I don’t know why some people are getting in a lather about it.

It happened. People talk about it.

What’s the problem ?
